  • participate in 8 monthly seminars per year (Sept-May)
  • attend an annual IMPART retreat
  • engage in trainee-driven, multidisciplinary, collaborative projects

Program Advisory Committee
A Program Advisory Committee (PAC) oversees the development and delivery of the research training program. A team of Mentors, Collaborators and a student representative work together to ensure:
  • the program vision and goals are met
  • the curriculum and learning opportunities meet learner's needs
  • recruitment strategies reach and attract a diverse audience
  • admissions processes and funding guidelines are consistent
  • all aspects of the CIHR Program are satisfied, including the evaluation requirements and dissemination of training results
The British Columbia Centre of Excellence for Women's Health administers IMPART and provides support to staff and the Program Advisory Committee.

Admission Review Committee
An Admission Review Committee with representatives from the Mentors and Collaborators convene quarterly and are responsible for the admissions process.
